Wonder what doom and gloom will be fed out to stop the fat cats giving the minions back their money?
Topics regarding layoffs at Dril-Quip Inc.
Why is DQ wasting big money on useless ignorant people who are non productive and do nothing but create a hostile environment among employees, looks like somebody got wires crossed, definitely wrong person at wrong place with wrong attitude, maybe... — read more
What the hell is happening, the place is falling apart. The main man leaving, what’s next
I don’t work for DQ but have been offered some contact service work with them. I’ve historically worked for FMC and GE/Vetco and don’t know much about DQ. Website researching and it looks like some pretty decent and fit for purpose kit. I know DQ... — read more
How and will he answer truthfully
Dril quip let a new food trailer come to the plant. Over priced and the service was mediocre. I ordered from the rough out crew the day before it came and we got out food LAST. I figured since we pre ordered that we would get our food quick, but i... — read more
when will you resign?
Can anyone tell me?
What to expect from the gathering. Any thoughts.
New month. Means new announcements. New direction. New plans.
Those that are retrenched. Asked to leave. Are now coming back daqp with much higher salary. Just after a few months. While those that are here working for years are only getting maximum 2 percent increment.
21 days till DQ transfers into centres of excellence. Who the hell are you trying to kid.
Rumour has it there is going to be a mass exodus of folk jumping ship to OSS and FMC. A man's gotta eat and we couldn't free water in thw Sahara.
There is a rumour that the shareholders are asking for a meeting Blake to answer questions as they are unhappy with the progress of the restructure and proceeding with the center's of excellence.
FMC had 600 employees and put out 42 trees a year under Netherland. BOD forced him out. Hired new leadership (bean counters), went on SAP, out sourced machining, went to 1200 employees and put out 30 trees a year. Only reason they made it was... — read more
This restructure is an absolute abortion. You have already been told these ridiculous centres of excellence wont work. BHGE have already tried it and dropped it after 6 months because it doesn't work. It may be what you want but it is not what your... — read more
May 31st. Another Doom day for DQAP and DQB. Many Orders were lost. Only Service will survive.
When is the announcement coming on what company leased the FORGING and ROUGHOUT department
It’s a big one........ watch this space
It sounds like nothing has changed since I left 2 years ago....Leaving has been the best thing to happen to me while at Dril-Quip. So what are they doing now ??? I suppose they could start selling some of Blake's Vinegar (it's really bad wine)
What's going on? Will there be any more layoffs at Dril-Quip any time soon? In all honesty, I'm hoping the answer is yes and my name is on the list. I really want to get out of here, and leaving with severance would be ideal. But knowing my luck... — read more

Well the end of March has been and gone and Blake has failed on his promise to have his master plan in place and we’re all still in the dark. Surprise surprise eh. Hey he’s maybe saving it for today to announce how our prosperous future looks... — read more
Tick tick. The clock has struck. The packages are in and security is set. Have your resume ready and go across the street the grass is greener
Every T card needs to be justified,in other words no it’s not going to happen,what an absolute shambles of a company, the management are clearly out of their depths...
A toast to the grape master
Moral is at all time low, even management know this. What are they going to do to fix this ? About time they sat down with the workforce and listened to there concerns.
Friday is the day for Houston. We have a friend that works in the Sheriff's office who told us that DQ has requested police presence for Friday.
The time has come to say goodbye. Tomorrow begins a new era. Ends an old one. the names are drawn and packages are at the ready. Security will be on hand. Who will stay to build a new future.
